Similarly one may ask, how do I know when my nose piercing is healed?

If it looks like your skin’s gone back to normal, you’re probably ready to change your nose ring. If there is swelling, redness or other forms of discoloration, or any discharge from the piercing, leave it alone for the time being. Those are signs that it hasn’t finished healing.

Additionally, will my nose piercing ever heal? On average, a standard nostril piercing takes about 4 to 6 months to heal. Bridge piercings are one of the less common nose piercings, but they have a fairly quick healing time. A piercing on the bridge of the nose takes about 8 to 12 weeks to heal fully. That’s a little less time than a nostril piercing.

Similarly, you may ask, how long does it take for a nose piercing to fully heal?

A nostril piercing will take anywhere from 4 to 6 months to heal (3 months if you’re lucky). Septum piercings need about 6 to 8 weeks to heal, as long as the cartilage wasn’t accidentally pierced. They’re actually the fastest-healing nose piercings when done right. A rhino piercing should heal in 6 to 9 months.

When can you change your nose piercing?

For this reason, most piercers recommend that you wait the maximum four months for nostril piercings and eight weeks for septum piercings before attempting to change the ring yourself. If you need to switch the ring before then, ask your piercer to tackle the job.

When can I stop cleaning my nose piercing?

You can stop following a twice a day aftercare schedule with saline once your nose piercing is entirely healed. Again, that can take up to 6 months, or even more for some types of nose piercings, like a rhino piercing. However, you should continue to clean the piercing regularly even after it is fully healed.

Can I take a shower with my new nose piercing?

Can I change my nose piercing after a day?
